I need some help please - I have a hard top that is Olive Green and someone wants it but was not sure what colour their car is, so I got the paintcode from them and did a search to ascertain which colour it was.

Does anyone know categorically what colour LZ6W is? no guesses or "I think" please :)

4 ) TTotal (Raven Black LZ9V year 2002)
5 ) NaughTTy (Brilliant Black LY9B year 2000)
6 ) ‘H’ (Denim Blue LZ/5W year 2000)
7 ) ColDiTT (Moro Blue year 2002)

Denim Blue Pearl: LZ5W

Thing is, if you google that paint code you get:

Olive Green
Desert Green
Cosmic Green
Steppe Grass Green

and a few more!

When I bought mine in 2002, that green was called Olive Green, it was a colour I looked at. I wonder if the same colour has different names for different markets maybe?

Cheers Penny -That is what I am thinking, obviously I want to be 100% so not a straightforward yes/no answer.

Thanks Jim that is useful to have the end bit of the code :)

Cheers Mark :)

Gosh darn it why could Aadi not have just had a GREEN TT rather than mucking about with all these poncy variations :)

Well, I went to main dealer for a touch up pen, told him it was olive green pearl, he took the chassis number, said it comes up desert green. (he told me thats what they call it in the US :? )
My touch up pen is part number - LST 0P2 Z6W and the label says - Steppengras Perleff

Hi Charlie,

When I was checking mine out with dealers etc before I bought, they all told me the colour was olive green pearl. Even when I asked the dealer for a touch up pencil with the code LZ6W, they confirmed olive green pearl and the paint I got matches perfectly. The plate in the boot says LZ6W.

The touch up pen number matches Farky's above.

The list that Mark put up doesn't list olive green pearl at all, but LZ6W is listed as desert green. I reckon they're the same colour.

PS have you sen my PM? :)

Yeah but how old/new is that list because it's missing moro blue, glacier blue, mauritius blue, avus silver as well as olive green and probably others that I'm not sad enough to know!

They change the names periodically, it's the only explanation.

Wow thanks for all your efforts guys, I really appreciate it even the random jelly comment Lee :roll: :lol:

I notice that on none of the lists does Olive Green appear - it is all Desert Green ? stupid Audi slaaaaaags :)

I suppose the next question would be does the hardtop have a paint code sticker on it anywhere? I did not notice one? but it is in my parents barn now :-(
